Jimmy Smith - The Best Of Jimmy Smith FLAC album
Covering prime early recordings from 1956-1960 and one mid-'80s cut, Blue Note's The Best of Jimmy Smith offers up a fine introduction to the trailblazing jazz organist. Smith's Blue Note sessions not only introduced the world to the complex solo possibilities of the Hammond B3 organ, but simultaneously ushered in the soul-jazz era of the '60s, spawning a wealth of fine imitators in the process. For his part, Smith eats up the scenery on all the sides here, taking his solo to particularly impressive heights on a fleetly swinging rendition of "When Johnny Comes Marching Home.

Best Of Jimmy Smith (The Blue Note Years). I am a Jimmy Smith fan. I have all of the Blue Note albums. The first one; a New Star, New Sound Jimmy Smith on organ. Purchased this on mp3 because most of my Jimmy Smith collection is on vinyl. Now I can play anytime in my automobile or when walking. Sometimes I go on U tube and watch Jimmy Smith and other organ players. This great album from Blue Note really does have the best of Jimmy Smith, especially "The Sermon", a 20 minute riff recorded in 1958. Published on August 28, 2015.
